Lena Dunham and Claire Danes

TV stars Lena Dunham and Claire Danes apparently grew up in the same NYC neighborhood but didn't become friends until years later when they were introduced by a mutual pal. During a red carpet interview at the Emmys in 2013, Claire told Ryan Seacrest that she is "in constant awe" of what Lena does, with Lena replying that Claire is her "favorite actress." In the same chat, Claire confessed that Lena was the one who turned her on to watching the ABC show Scandal while she was nursing her newborn son, Cyrus.
